Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Beware the Empty Diet Claims

on January 15, 2014

Jane E. Brody must be doing something right; she’s been vigorously advocating smart eating and exercise for The New York Times since dinosaurs roamed the earth (hired by the Times in 1965, she started her “Pesonal Health” column in 1976). In this week’s Science section, her piece, “The Empty Diet-Claim Season” validates Butterscotch Blastoff when she says, “Small changes can end up making a big difference. One is to avoid skipping meals. Eat a nutritious breakfast every day….”



This easy shirred egg in ham with whole wheat toast is probably not Jane’s ideal breakfast, but it keeps me from being hungry ’til well past noon and it’s a reasonable portion size. “If…you think a meal is not a meal without potatoes, rice, bread or…dessert, by all means include them–but in controlled amounts.”

Thank you, Jane!
